Zapa was adopted 6 weeks ago she is a one year old. Very smart learned sit, stay, paw and no within a couple weeks. She was not totally house broken. She is still learning about us and starting to get more comfortable by the day. We started the bell about 10 days ago. Bell is on floor right by door we take her out EVERY 35 minutes all waking hours. We tap the bell which makes her paw it, we wait till she hits just right and give a YAHOO, out the door ask her to pee. She pees 99% of the time. She has yet to ring the bell on her own? We are not giving up on the bell yet. Will rate higher if and when she gets this.
I was seriously doubtful that I would be able to train my puppy to use this thing. For three months I rang this bell every time (well almost every time - we have kids) the now 7 month old miniature goldendoodle went out to potty. 3 months of me pushing his nose into it to ring it and giving him rewards. We had regular dinner conversations about how futile the whole thing was and then, one day, the pup was playing with his toys, stood up, dropped his toy, walked over to the doorbell and rang it. We were so surprised that we looked at each other for like three seconds, so he rang it again. When I opened the door he bolted out the door and peed in his potty spot. And it's been two weeks of him ringing the bell on his own to go out. Success!!!!!!!
I needed to move the button and ended up wishing I had used a different wall adhesive. I am so used to the easily removable 3M strips that I just assumed it would be okay. Alas, I was mistaken and will need to have my wall touched up where the paint was pulled off. I'm a bit salty
Works perfectly, and has held up perfectly. We have it mounted on the outside of the storm door (on a covered porch) and our dog hits it multiple times every day with her muddy snoot. I love that the receiver can be halfway across our (tiny) house so I can hear the bell wherever I am instead of relying on it being loud enough to hear through the door. Also as far as I can tell the button doesn’t have any batteries that need to be replaced? Or if it does, they haven’t shown any sign of needing replacement. We tried to get her to use it to ask to go out when she was a puppy and not yet potty trained, but that didn’t go great. (I think because it was hard to get her to differentiate between “outside for potty” vs “outside for play”) But we tried again when she was older so she would stop scratching at the door and pawing at the handle to come in. It took her literally less than a day to figure it out! We haven’t decided whether to get a second button so she can push it to ask to go out too. Too bad the buttons aren’t sold on their own.
This is genius!! Although I must warn you, once your pet realizes this bells means an outing they will try to take advantage! LOL my Chloe rings this bell multiple times even though she has already been out
I ordered a set with two doorbells and put one on the outside of the front and back doors to keep our Goldendoodle from scratching the door to come in. It took her MONTHS to finally use them, and now we have created a monster! She rings the front bell once then if we don't let her in within 30 seconds she starts ringing it again, more aggressively. If we still don't answer, she runs around to the back door and rings it incessantly until we do LOL. I guess we need a 2nd set so we can set different ringtones for the front and back. Needless to say, the doorbells have held up well.
Love the concept and it works beautifully, when I do it! I put peanut butter on it and my puppy caught on right away! BUT it takes more than a lick to work and needs to be pushed with a little force , more than I expected! That’s the only reason I didn’t give 5 stars. Hopefully he will learn to use force as he gets older!
Its a nice product, but I cant get my dogs to exert the required pressure to activate it.
my 6 year-old who was used to scratching on the door to be let in & out wasn't too happy in the change of routine. she was perfectly happy with the old model and make her satisfaction perfectly clear. needless to say, the doorbell didn't really work for her (we're still trying), but the system itself did exactly as promised.
Amazing. Best thing I’ve purchased on chewy. Beans realized after 3 example pushes from us, what the bell meant. Now she pushes it every time she wants to go outside. Best potty training tool EVER
